I would like to give my opinion, but your survey link is not working (https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/Give-feedback-landing-page)

Well, I wanted to say that firefox for windows needs better integration : - fingerprint reader for unlocking passwords instead of master password - windows trackpad gestures needs to be integrated (example: slide two fingers to left/right to go backward/forward in navigation)

Chrome and Edge do them already, I think you really need to this.

Regards.

Our barcodes will not show up in firefox but are fine in every other browser. Specifically, it is the code39b font. Is there any way around this in firefox? Allowing websites to choose their own fonts is enabled, and changing/disabling the sandbox also did not help. I have not found any helpful add-ons either. Please share if you have any ideas, thank you!

Excuse my long winded explanation but I have a problem with an Acer Nitro Gaming Laptop that I bought 6 months ago when my HP laptop had a hard drive failure. I purchased the new Acer rather than have my HP repaired. After a month of frustration I sent my old HP for repair and have been waiting for a fix for the Acer that appears to have a software issue not a hardware problem. The issue that I'm having is that no matter which browser I'm using it frequently crashes while web browsing. Depending on which browser I'm using I will get the message Oh dear we encountered a problem, or Oh Snap your page crashed or status_access_violation.

The laptop has done this since fresh out of the box no matter what browser that I use and so far I've tried Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Brave. They all crash which is downright frightening if you are in the midst of doing an online purchase or an online banking transaction. I prefer to use the Firefox browser and have used it for several years.

What I find most interesting is that if I use the old original Internet Explorer that comes in the Windows 10 accessories the laptop is stable and works flawlessly without issues. The main problem is that most web sites no longer support the old explorer and Windows in constantly wanting to update the browser to Edge. Since it works perfectly with the Internet Explorer it leads me to assume that I have a software, coding bug that is unique to the Acer laptop.

In the interim I have a $1,000 doorstop that is of no use to me until a solution is found to this problem. So far I have tried virtually every suggestion out there from updating to the latest versions of the software, trying different browsers and even tried renaming the executable files that initiate the browsers. I have also twice done a full factory reset and started over, none have worked. If anyone out there has a suggestion or solution to this my dilemma please contact me at fhmechanic@gmail.com Thanks!

I want to disable checking for updates, but the setting to do so has been removed. After updating fairly recently, I noticed that the setting located in:

about:preferences#general

Was changed to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" WITHOUT my permission. As a result of this change, I get nagged while I am working ALL THE TIME. Like, several times a day. Not just when the browser first starts, but while I am working. I am getting sick of it! It's become spam at this point, drawing my eyes away from work. and if you think spamming people will make them do it, think again.

In Windows 10 I got so fed up with the automatic updates disrupting work that I outright destroyed my computer's ability to EVER get a system update. If the nuclear option is available for Firefox I am prepared to do so if only to make it shut up already.

So anyway, please tell me, how do I make it stop nagging me about updates? and while I am at it, how do I kill the notification system entirely? because I never want any type of notification ever disrupting me while I am working.

Obviously Mozilla understands this sentiment, since the default behavior now is to hide notifications as described here:

https://blog.mozilla.org/firefox/block-notification-requests/

So why be so in-your-face about updates?

NOTE: I am not against updates in general, but back in the 90's when software updates was optional I updated things far more often because I enjoyed having the ability to do research on an update before accepting it. This personal policy has resulted in me avoiding lots of bad updates that damaged other people's computers, but software that updates without permission like Chrome, for example, would constantly introduce bugs or change behavior without my permission in such a way that makes it largely unusable to me. On my chromebook computer I was able to temporarily block chromebook updates by manually setting the version number to a maximum value but the moment google found a way around that an update was pushed that screwed up touch screen functionality, so, realistically speaking, the heavy handed approach to updates is ultimately what causes me to stop updates. Ironically. While I understand a desire for security, these big companies just don't seem to realize that my computer is my own personal property so they can't treat it like it was under the authority of their IT department. I just want control over what my computer is doing. If and when I update it will be because I am ready to, not because someone else decided to force it on me.

Looks like I need to rollback to Firefox version 84. Updated to version 86. However, printing from Reader View takes over twice the number of printed pages as Simplify Page function found in earlier version. The font in Reader View is much too large for efficient printing.

The two uploaded images print the same webpage article, but earlier Firefox version takes 16-pages, while version 86 takes over twice that many, 35-pages.

Are there about:config settings that can reduce font size in Reader View, or do I have to rollback to version 84?

I have experienced with a specific website where downloading images always prompts the save to the Downloads folder instead of staying in the folder where i need to set the downloads for.

meaning: a set of images when clicking on save, then selecting the destination folder and saving, works ok. But upon saving the next image from the gallery returns to the downloads folder.

Trying this from any other website, the last folder where the last image was saved is the one where the new image will be saved.

If from the website where im having this issue, i right-click then click on the image and select "view image" and click save, the browser.download.lastdir does work and the previously used folder shows up as the destination for download.

I do not want and never requested "automatic upgrades". I want them stopped and if possible the last several "upgrades" reversed. How can I get this accomplished. It's bad enough that "google" has it's fingers in everything as it is without "upgrades" I don't want and didn't ask for, and have done nothing to make things work any better. In fact it's gotten worse. If anyone knows how I can contact firefox directly it would be most appreciated.

Yandex browser does not open pages - old browser writes sites google docs writes that this version is not supported


Firefox browser itself writes that it has been updated to the latest version.
